James R. Willis, Jr., is the 4th of 10 remarkable children hailing from the Queen City of Cincinnati, Oh. He has always been known as a hard worker learning many of his construction skills from his father. Recently, he retired after 43 years, from his secular occupation as a heavy equipment operator. This career allowed him to work for and contract his services to many companies throughout the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland. Currently, he serves as a Pastor and Chairman of the Pastor’s and Elder’s Council for the Church of God in Christ. He is the husband of the late Cynthia A. Willis, of whom he was married to for 35 years until March of 2017. Through that union, two children were born, Jamese and James III, his pride and joy. When he’s not at dinner on Sunday with his family, he may be reading, learning a new technological device or in the kitchen cooking and baking. One of his greatest passions, above all else, is spreading wisdom and insight; not only to his congregation but to his children, friends and those that God places in his path. Pastor Willis, has a wealth of wisdom to share and he is thrilled to start this new venture of empowerment!
